Common research space

The Multi-R-Hub aims to create a common research space to effectively use and develop the infrastructure available at the University of Warsaw. Thanks to the funding from IDUB Action II 3.7, we have created laboratories equipped with computers, eyetrackers and an EEG booth to facilitate gathering cutting-edge empirical data.

The lab is located at Dobra 55, room 2.223. It is equipped with a 32-electrode Biosemi Active-Two system and a soundproof booth with a Faraday cage to run experiments in. For experiments either PsychoPy or E-Prime can be used. Both programmes will be available in the lab, together with Matlab licenses which allow for EEG data analysis supported by free-of-charge EEGLAB and ERPLAB packages.

We also acquired a state-of-the-art eye-tracking system. EyeLink Portable Duo produced by SR Research can be used to track eye gaze and movements during language processing and measure pupil size both in the lab and in the field. It can be used independently or jointly with the EEG system for more advanced research.


Practical EEG workshops (2022/2023)

The aim of launching the EEG Lab at Dobra 55 was to drive excellence in future research in linguistics, to train linguists in psychological methods, and to further develop the expertise of the researchers involved in the IDUB initiative, as well as students and Ph.D. candidates from our faculties. For this reason, we have organized a series of workshops devoted to the theory and practice of EEG and eye-tracking research. These take place at Dobra 55 every month.

The workshops carried out in the academic year 2022/2023 (for the full list of Workshops see HERE) were given by Dr. Kalinka Timmer from the Faculty of Psychology UW. The first three workshops presented EEG basics, including the basics behind the analysis of so-called ERPs (i.e. event-related potentials). The second series of workshops aimed at practical knowledge: the data acquisition protocol, electrode placement, and troubleshooting during the experiment, designing and replicate a study with a focus on one of the linguistic ERP components.

Practical eye-tracking workshops (20234/2024)

In the academic year 2023/2024 we are launching a new series of workshops on using eye tracking in linguistic research. In the winter semester we are going to learn some theoretical basics, and in the summer semester we are running practical, hands-on workshops on collecting and analysing eye-tracking data. The training is conducted by prof. Agnieszka Szarkowska and Dr. Valentina Ragni.

This semester meetings are held on Thursdays11.30-13.00 in room 3.045. For those who cannot attend on site, the meetings will also be held on Zoom and will be recorded. The permanent link is:

Seminars and workshops (since 2022)

The Multi-R-Hub aims to facilitate the exchange of know-how and experience among researchers and students working on language acquisition and use. The following seminars are taking place in 2022:

Multi-R-Hub seminar (once a month, Thursday, 11.30-13:00) presents the research carried out by the Multi-R-Hub teams or by the invited guests (see the full list of events or watch on YouTube HERE). You can access all recordings from our seminars  on the official IDUB YouTube channel: YT Multilingualism Research Hub (II.3.7)

The seminar takes place at Dobra 55 and/or online.

Please check the news about the upcoming events.

Research methodology courses

All those who want to learn more about the methods of empirical research can take part in a wide range of research methods courses created and run by our lab members, e.g. (

  • SPSS: the basics of statistics made easy
  • Introduction to research methods in applied linguistics.
  • Metody badań i analiza danych korpusowych.
  • Wprowadzenie w pracę na platformie Sketch Engine
  • Z Excelem przez badania: przygotowanie i prowadzenie badań empirycznych oraz analiza ich wyników w programie Excel
  • R 101: data wrangling, analysis and visualization

The courses are run in coopeartion with the School for International Science UW thanks to the IDUB funding.

  • The Flying School of Linguistics Applied  (2016-2021) was a research interest group  aiming to present and discuss good practices in the research on linguistics APPLIED to various domains. Each time a speaker (a PhD student, or a researcher) presents a cutting-edge piece of linguistic research with a slight twist towards psycholinguistics. The speakers discuss study aims and design, instruments, equipment, procedures, as well and results and their interpretation. They also point to challenges and opportunities offered by the particular methodology applied. Please check the news and follow us on Facebook to present or learn about about the upcoming events.
